Obsessions for a Thursday

With some time to spare I thought I would share some of my latest obsessions on this lovely Thursday. Yes, one day closer to the weekend!

My first obsession lately is tights with boots. I am absolutely loving the look and can't wait to get myself a brown pair of boots to add to my closet!

love love love

My next love of the week is my gel nail color. At first I couldn't love the color because I was disappointed it wasn't darker like the bottle promised, but that is always the case with nail polish. But as I get use to it, the more I love it.

red delicious!

My last obsession of course has to be a food option and I can't get enough of them. I never feel good about eating a bagel, just too many carbs at one time, but bagel things solve everything. And of course when I came across the pumpkin spice flavor in the grocery store, I knew I needed to have them. Try them! I swear you will love them!


Well, my coffee is just about done brewing and I need to head out, have a wonderful day!

Until next time!

Feelings of a Hockey Fan

As I sit here on the couch with the guy next to me, he is in his Bruins tee and we happen to be watching a re-run of a 24/7, a show that take a look at hockey and its teams behind the scenes, I can't help but be depressed about the on going lockout. I won't get into details because honestly it makes me so angry but I will say I need my sport back!

I grew up in a house where hockey was a daily occurrence, if my brothers weren't playing a game, my dad was coaching, if we weren't in season, we were planning for the next one, it was a big deal. I'm even dating a hockey player :) Hockey was just always present and now that I may experience a lockout as an adult, it's scary.

I just hope that the players and management can come to an agreement before it's too late. They need to stop thinking about themselves and think about the fans!

Until next time!

Things That Go Bump In The Night

Lazy was anything but, I am just now relaxing and it is almost 8!!! Today was filled with the usual Sunday chores; the painstaking process of doing laundry, grocery shopping, cleaning and of course coming up with our Sunday meal.

Today wasn't that hard coming up with something quick and easy and we decided on pulled pork. The recipe was from my mumma of course, like I always say, she has all the good ones. All you need for this recipe is a pork roast and a bottle of bbq sauce, you put it all in the crockpot and let sit all day. Ours came out good but I would have like to have it sit a bit longer. But it was yummy still!

So as Halloween quickly approaches, more and more scary movie previews are beginning to appear on television, not to mention every other movie channel playing one as well. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE scary movies but lately I have been a bit more spooked than usual. We sat down to watch one of guilty pleasures the other night, American Horror Story, for those of you who haven't seen it should start watching it, although it's in its second season, the premise of the show is a whole new story line which helps those who didn't watch last season. Anyways, I digress, we were watching AHS and it was one of those episodes that you find yourself thinking about after its ended and I just found myself easily startled at little things not only in the show but after it was over, little noises, the blinds moving weird, not to mention I mistook a huge picture we have in the bedroom for a person, literally jumped out of my skin but I never use to scare easily which is weird for me, I guess it comes with age.

And if that wasn't enough scare for me, they have been playing Paranormal Activity 4 trailers like its no bodies business, but I am getting pretty good at changing the channel just as frequently.

I have seen all three previous movies but there is something about this one that seems unsettling with me and not to mention the rave reviews it received from my brother....

On that note...I may be skipping this one.

I hope everyone enjoyed their weekends and have a great week!

Until next time!

Linking up for Thursday

One day closer to Friday, who isn't excited about the weekend! I will be heading up to NH to visit my family on Saturday and I am so excited!

For today I am linking up for "It's OK" Thursday.

It's ok that I am excited that the weather is now cold enough for me to wear tights with my dresses.

It's ok that I have been eating the same thing for lunch for the past two week. Can't help it I'm a creature of habit!

It's ok that I screamed like a child last night when I found a stink bug in my car.

It's ok that this weekend is filled with lots and lots of relaxation.

It's ok that I still get homesick :(

It's ok that I've only ran once this week (I will go tonight I promise)!

It's ok that I finally enjoy going to work! FINALLY!!!

Have a lovely Thursday and rest of the weekend if I don't post!

Until next time loves!

Getting Into The Swing of Things

Hi loves, hope everyone had a less than hectic Monday! I am finally getting into the swing of things at work and fitting in more and more. Last week was filled with training but yesterday was my first day on my own and it felt good to know what I was doing.

In other news...I am growing out my hair dun...dun....dun. Its an awful process and trust me everyone around me has heard me bitch and complain probably everyday. Not only does my hair take FOREVER to grow out but it is also at an awkward length right now so its hard to do anything different then wear it down. So in the next couple of days I may be making a  decision to either cut it or start trying some alternate measures to change up the do! If anyone has any suggestions, send them my way!

I am enjoying my extra time in the morning but don't get me wrong I miss my 8-4:30 schedule but oh well, change is a good thing!

Until next time my loves!

Wednesday already?!

Happy Hump Day my loves! It has been one heck of a week and its only Wednesday. Like I mentioned early I started my new job on Tuesday which has been amazing. The job seems like it will be something I will love doing and I've met some great people as well.

I've spent the majority of my night after I got home today catching up on all my favorite blogs, I have been so out of the loop this past week with all my blogs but tonight was a good catch up night and I can't wait to get back on to a normal schedule and be able to get back to my faithful blog schedule...soon hopefully!

This weekend should be a good time to gather my thoughts and relax. The weather is looking to be perfect and chilly and I hope to get some apple picking in, if time allows, who knows what manages to find themselves on my calendar. We are planning on meeting up with some of our friends and going to Dave & Busters which I hear is like a Chuck E Cheese for grown-ups?! Has anyone been? Let me know what I'm in for!

Anyways, I need to go tend to my macaroni on the stove, Ryan is at a dinner with some of the valve guys from overseas so it is dinner for 1 tonight.

Until next time my blog loves!

Better Late Than Never

Hi loves, another Monday come and gone, hope everyone enjoyed their holiday! I know I did. I spent the day preparing myself for the new job which starts tomorrow! I treated myself to some new clothes, my eyebrows freshly waxed and a much needed manicure!

I picked up my new car on Saturday which was the highlight of the weekend! Like I promised, here are some pictures!

Other than the excitement of a new car the weekend was pretty laid back.

Short post tonight, but I'm exhausted and need to relax in front of the tv to keep myself from stressing out about tomorrow. I will be sure to keep you all posted on how it goes.

Until next time!

Red Pants Friday and Good Vibes

Happy Friday my dears! I'm rocking the red pants for my last at work!

Good news is I found a new car! I pick it up Saturday and I couldn't be more excited. Stay tuned for pictures :)

In other news, with all these new and exciting things going on in my life, I had to take a step back and acknowledge the people who have been there to support the ups and downs. I was reading quotes this morning and one jumped out at me:

"Friendship isn’t about whom you’ve know the longest. It’s about who came and never left your side."

The reason this quote is so powerful to me is because the people I surround myself with are just that, they are the friendships that haven't been years long in length but are the true friendships, which I'm starting to see is way more important. I have a handful of people who would drop anything for me right now and I would do the same and that is huge for me. I've always been the quality over quantity type. I love love love all of the people who are helping in my happiness and supporting me, (that includes all you lovies as well).

My family, Ry's family and of course Ryan have seen me through this whole process as well and I applaud them for sticking through it with me :)

I'm at a really good place in my life and this blog is also another big contributer to that, I love knowing that I have other people besides that close to me that will listen (read) what I'm going through and be there for support! You all are great!

On that note, I hope you all have an amazing Friday and a better weeekend. The weather isn't looking too promising here in New England but we will make due!

Until next time loves!

Thursday Calls for a Link Up

Happy Thursday to you all! Another wet day here in New England but we are one day closer to Friday which should shed a little sunshine on all of us!

Today I am trying something new and linking up with the Amber and Neely for "It's OK" Thursday.

It's ok...

that I only gave my work a few days notice on when my last day with them would be. New opportunities call for sacrifices.

that I was absolutely scared out of my mind last night being in the apartment by myself. Damn you late Wednesday night hockey for stealing my man!

that I am going to look at new cars today. I have never had a brand new car and I think it's time I deserve one.

that I haven't worked out once this week. The weather is leaving me too lazy to get out of bed, let alone go for a run.

that I am trying my hardest with an old friend to rekindle a friendship. Because honestly no matter how awful the fall out was, I'm not ready to give up.

that I bought myself some new heels. 

that I have been reading magazines all week at work because my motivation level is just not there.

it's okay that I am terrified to start my new job but know that it will be good for me in the long run.

I feel like that are a lot of "it's oks" but its been a long week. Very ready for the weekend.

Enjoy your Thursday's my loves.

Until next time!

To New Beginnings

Happy Hump day my loves!

With a long wet and windy drive to start to my morning I couldn't help but think about how blessed I am in so many ways. I have an amazing boyfriend, I have some pretty great (not to mention true) friendships, I have a loving and supporting family, I am blessed with good health and now on top of all that wonderfulness, I FINALLY SCORED A NEW JOB!!!!

I found out last night and I could not wait to share the great news. Trust me this search for a new job has not been easy and it has gone on for so long I  almost gave up but last night that all changed and I couldn't be happier! I am going to be working in the HR department for a company I have always dreamed about working for! I can't wait! My love for fashion and my career are coming together! I start the new job on Tuesday so I am in  little predicament with giving my current job such a short notice but this is such an opportunity I can't pass up!

I just wanted to share my wonderful news with all of you and I can't wait to share the next chapter in my life!

Stay dry today loves!

Until next time.

October already?!

Happy Monday everyone!

Can you believe it's already October?!

With Fall in full swing, now comes the hockey schedule haha. Don't get me wrong I love that Ryan plays hockey, I'm just not 100% percent comfortable in the apartment yet and when I'm alone I scare myself easily! Anyways, Friday night he left for hockey and I needed to catch up on my Thursday night guilty pleasures a.k.a Grey's and Scandal. Let me just say, its good Ryan wasn't around to witness my emotional breakdown for Grey's (I won't ruin it for those who are still catching up). After my shows were over it became a game trying to find something to watch and quickly racing to find the remote as soon as a scary movie trailer came on, I swear I love this time of year but the movie trailers that come along with thank you! So I settled on the Disney channel (don't laugh) its the only station without scary movie I right?! Ryan came home and I'm passed out to the Disney channel haha.

Saturday we went down to UCONN to visit Ryan's sister who had just turned 21. It was a nice day, the rain held off for the most part. We went out to a late lunch and had cake back in her dorm. Its always good to visit her! That night we just relaxed and caught up on TV shows. Relaxing nights are always good before our usual busy Sundays.

Sunday was the usual, we went and visited with Ryan's parents before we made our trek to Wegman's, once the grocery shopping was done we rushed home just in time for the Patriots game. I made fried green beans which were surprisingly easy, I left the recipe at home but will post later. Once I digested from the green beans and wings, it was time to bake my apple crisp. I had been wanting to try baking one since last fall. I tried one last fall but it just didn't come out as well as I planned. So I tried another recipe. I used this recipe here. It turned out amazing! It was a great dessert to our Sunday dinner.
Right out of the oven!


Well I guess I should get back to work. Its not going to finish itself, even though that would be amazing!

Until next time!
